Template:Decade in country category/doc

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


[change source]

Template:Decade in country category is intended to be used on decade in country categories (for example, Category:2000s in Canada or Category:1530s in England). It creates a "timeline" style table of links to categories for adjacent decades before or after it (see example below).

{{Decade in country category| | | |}}


[change source]

The first three parameters indicate the country and its continent(s).

  • The first parameter is the country name as indicated in the category name (but without prefixes which are unwanted for sorting, these should be added to the 4th parameter).
  • The second parameter is the continent where the country is located.
  • The third parameter is optional: if a country is located in two continents (mainly for countries in Europe and Asia, like Russia or Turkey), then a second continent can be included here. The order of the two continents is not important. This third parameter can also be used with member states of the United Kingdom (use "United Kingdom"), the former Soviet Union ("Soviet Union"), or former Yugoslavia ("Yugoslavia").
  • The 4th parameter is used for sorting of countries which start with "The" (or other prefixes like "the Socialist Republic of "): this can be left empty for most countries.
